For the FTSE 100, the past week has been a story of repeated attempts to push above 6700, with each one defeated. We have seen some downside weakness this morning, and as a result, we could witness a move back to 6600, and then down to 6500, should the selling gather pace.
As throughout this week, the bulls require a close above 6700 to open the way to the next big level, around 6820.
